At Least Seven Killed in Power Station Bombing North of Iraqi Capital”

"Joint security forces killed eight Daesh suicide attackers who attempted to storm the Al-Jalesiyya power plant in Saladin's city of Samarra", an Iraqi military source, speaking anonymously due to restrictions on talking to media, told Anadolu Agency. The attack also injured 12 people, according to security sources.

Four policemen and three workers were killed in the attack, in which 13 were wounded, police and medical sources from a nearby hospital said.

"I was in my night shift and suddenly heard shooting and blasts".

Salahudin's authorities frequently warned that the extremist Islamic State (IS) militants are attacking the cities and villages of the province using the sprawling rugged area that extends from the western part of Salahudin province to the desert in the neighboring Anbar province. Security forces arrived at the scene and annihilated two of the three suicide bombers, while the other one was killed by the detonation of the explosives he was carrying. "A few minutes later I saw one attacker wearing a military uniform and throwing grenades through the windows", Raied Khalid, a worker who was injured by shrapnel, told Reuters. "Some of us hid while two others kept running towards the exit, shouting "we are employees", but they (the attackers) shot them dead", he said.

The police official said security reinforcements evacuated the employees. It now holds just two pockets of territory in the country.
